POSTPONED - Life event history analysis: Two days seminar in honour of Professor Ørnulf Borgan's 70th anniversary in 2020

We invite you to a two-day seminar celebrating Professor Ørnulf Borgans many and substantial contributions to statistics in general and life event history analysis in particular. The seminar takes place in Auditorium 2 in Helga Engs House, Blindern Campus, University of Oslo, from Monday May 25th 11:00 to Tuesday May 26th, 14:00, 2020. The seminar has been postponed due to the corona-epidemics. We will announce a new date as soon as possible.

For the seminar we have invited several of Ørnulf's key collaborators to give talks. We hope many other colleagues, students and friends will participate in this celebration of Ørnulf and his outstanding career as Professor of Statistics at the University of Oslo.
